Constant change in landscapes, cities, and shorelines demand accurate, up-to-date understanding of environments and resources. Kinetics Geospatial delivers geospatially precise visual representations of the earth for any area of interest, applicable for base-maps and an array of derived product applications.
An Orthoimage is an aerial photograph which has been geometrically corrected / rectified to conform to a uniform scale, and that also has been adjusted for distortion / elevation / topographic relief using a digital elevation model (DEM). Orthos are important resources for mapping and geospatial professionals because they display the rich, detailed information represented in photographs (but without distortion), and are an accurate representation of the Earth’s surface—and similar to a map orthos can be used for measuring true distances.
The section below displays a selection of orthoimagery samples from various Kinetics Geo projects. To see additional Kinetics Geo sample imagery—or for more information about how we can help make your next orthoimagery project a success—contact us today via email or call us at 321.765.7855.
NORTH CAROLINA / VIRGINIA CORRIDOR MAPPING
POWER LINE CORRIDOR ORTHOIMAGERY AND LiDAR PRODUCTION
Kinetics Geo produced 1-inch orthoimagery for over 2000 miles of electrical utility corridor in the states of North Carolina and Virginia. The imagery covered a corridor width of 300ft with additional coverage around crossings and substations.
CITY OF SEATTLE STEREO COMPILATION
TWO SQUARE MILES
3-INCH RESOLUTION ORTHOIMAGERY
Kinetics Geospatial performed full 3D planimetric collection using stereo compilation methods to meet the City of Seattle CAD standard for an area encompassing two square miles in the heart of Seattle. For this project, Kinetics Geo collected over 90 unique features—from land use features such as roads and buildings, to land cover features such as landscaping and water.
Kinetics Geo orthos are a key component of the basemaps used in many public and private GIS databases, and a variety of products, mapping tools, and databases can be derived from our orthos. These ortho-derived products support analysis, planning, and decision-making for applications such as: transportation, land-use/land-cover, assessment / change detection, wetlands, soil, parcel mapping, agriculture, forestry and other natural resources. In addition, Kinetics Geo orthos also can be combined further with digital elevation data for 3D modeling / slope and terrain analysis.
